Strútsfoss waterfall is located near Egilsstaoir town in the southern province of Fljotsdalur. Whilst it may not be the highest of waterfalls in Iceland, it still stands at a very impressive 74 metres high. It is visible miles before reaching the actual sight, cascading down the rock face from a great distance.

The waterfall itself a 20-minute walk from the rough dirt track that leads car drivers up towards the sight. Given the terrain is unmade and hilly, make sure you have packed your best walking boots for this part of the journey. Once you are at the waterfall it is definitely worth the effort for spectacular views and photographs that can be taken.

Once you are in the Fljotsdalur area you might as well make best use of your time and visit some other sights, such as the Skriduklaustur historical and cultural centre. It was the former home of renowned Icelandic author Gunnar Gunnarsson and displays art and cultural exhibitions all year round.
